Panasonic 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives, the Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is compatible with Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range. One UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) element pairs with two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. Multi-coatings have also been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity in harsh lighting conditions.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, this lens also features a stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and movie shooting. Additionally, MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.

Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range to cover a variety of telephoto perspectives.
One UHR element helps to achieve even illumination and sharpness for consistent performance throughout the aperture and zoom ranges.
A pair of aspherical elements reduces spherical aberration and distortion for increased sharpness and clarity.
Multi-coated elements help to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy.
MEGA O.I.S. compensates for camera shake in order to realize sharper photos and videos when shooting handheld.
Stepping motor provides smooth, near-silent autofocus that is compatible with Lumix cameras' high-speed contrast-detection systems.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.

    Panasonic 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great images. Bought this over the Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 because it is slightly smaller (especially when fully extended), has smaller filter thread, and has better build quality. Was hoping that the image quality would be as good as the Oly, but I am afraid it just is not quite as good. I'm not a pixel peeper, but the Olympus just looks sharper to my eye. Images are good enough, I'll keep it for the small form factor and build. I don't shoot tele-photo often enough, otherwise I would choose the Olympus, especially when you can get one on sale for $99 (which is insane considering the image quality of that lens).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck Great telephoto for travel: small, light and good range. Comparing it to the original Lumix 45-200mm, it's shorter, lighter, a little sharper and has better color rendition. The zoom ring on the 45-150 is a little stiff, but it doesn't have zoom-creep, which the 45-200 does have, and it's really annoying. I haven't done a lot of pixel peeping, but cropping a photo taken with this lens at 150mm yields the same or better results as an uncropped picture taken at 200mm. The 45-200mm II has the same optics as the original, so the comparison should be the same.� If so, choosing this lens is an easy way to save yourself $300, in exchange for some cropping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good standard telephoto lens for a good price I received this lens for free when I purchased my GX85. I was originally looking at getting the Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 as I like that focal length for a standard telephoto. So far I have not found any reasons to upgrade to that lens yet. There have been a few times I would have preferred the extra stops of light with 35-100mm but this lens has been more than adequate so far. I would highly recommend it for any new photographers who are looking for a good telephoto. The image stabilization on this lens works well. And so far the photos have been sharp enough for me. A more experienced photographer might pick up on some of the shortcomings but for less than $200, it is a good deal for a budget telephoto.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good starting Telephoto lens Obviously, there are better options out there especially premium-grade lenses but if you consider the price you pay and the range you get. This is a very good starting Telephoto lens especially if you are new to photography. You'll get pleasing results without breaking the bank. This lens works great when used in good lighting conditions and still workable in low-light given you know your limits. The zoom ring feels good and very smooth to turn. I wish the Manual focus ring was a bit more tighter than it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing low end about this I got this when it went on sale...I am using a panasonic g7...I have the Olympus 40-150 but it focuses too slow on the panasonic...This lens focuses� very quickly...my images are very sharp...I have used it to shoot cityscapes and wildlife and portraits...it is multitalented� and will render spectacular images providing you have good light....Providing you get a good copy I guarantee you will like this

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sharp & lightweight. This lens emphasizes the beauty of mirrorless systems with its size. Nice & sharp. The pics I've uploaded are not good by any means but they show the sharpness at f5.6 at 45mm & 150mm, out of the camera jpegs, taken with a G7, ISO 800, bounce flash.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little soft ar 150mm I haven't had a lot of time to test this lens but in my opinion it was a little soft on the high end of the focal length range. A decent price for this lens still made it a good buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice smaller telephoto This came with my GX85 which I am thankful for, because the kit lens that came with it wasn't that great between not having manual focus and a narrower aperture which means no blurring of the background- which isn't the case with this lens though the f stop value isn't great a 4- there is still a lot of compression happening with the backgrounds which makes the subject stand out. I'm used to shooting plants with wide angles and fisheyes so this has been fun to play with and have some distance from the subject- especially useful for pollinators and bird identification. Though its not the sharpest lens in the world, it is not bad- especially if you get it for free when you buy a new camera. I think its a nice length to have without carrying around something larger, and thankfully it comes with its own lens hood.
